17 Cinco de Mayo Drinks That Are Easy to Make at Home (and Aren’t All Margaritas)
We’re ready to fiestaaaaa. (*Said in Kristen Wiig Bridesmaids voice*) But seriously, Cinco de Mayo is around the corner. To get in the mood, swoon over the following 17 festive sips, then make them come May 5.
They’re not just for toast anymore.
Frozen Spiked Mexican Hot Chocolate
A childhood favorite with a grown-up twist.
Zesty Lime Mojitos
Large-batch cocktails mean you’re not stuck playing bartender all night.
With grapefruit and cranberry juices and simple syrup, this drink is the perfect mix of sweet and sour.
We couldn’t decide which to drink, so we combined them. (And it’s surprisingly tasty.)
Watermelon Tequila Slush
Aka what we want to drink from now until September.
Tequila Sunrise Mimosa
We won’t judge if you start sipping pre-noon.
These are just as delicious without the alcohol, in case you were wondering.
We like to think of this as Reese Witherspoon in cocktail form: sweet, bright and effervescent.
Cucumber Agua Fresca
These are alcohol-free, but a splash of vodka would never hurt our feelings.
Prickly Pear Mezcal Mule
Don’t be fooled by the hot pink—these have a nice little kick of jalapeño.
White Sangria with Peaches and Berries
There’s fruit in, so you can drink it before noon.
If you’re looking for something a bit more traditional.
Trade Moscow for Mexico.
